No, really, the food is great. We stopped for breakfast on the last morning of our stay in Estes Park. We had a short wait for a table, but found the waiter to be friendly and service prompt.

Just about the best breakfast in Estes Park is The Egg & I. Good ingredients, healthy alternatives, great staff and reasonable prices. What more could you ask for?? And on top of that they get creative with some of their menu items from time to time ! And they service is very prompt even when they are packed.

We have visited Estes Park 4 times over the past 8 years. Each visit is usually at least 2 years or more apart. We eat breakfast there each time. The food and the service has always been excellent. The you never walk away hungry and the prices are very reasonable.

This was our favorite meal in Estes Park. Delicious. We missed the breakfast rush so we didn't have to wait. Food came out fast and our coffee cup was always full. Perfect after a morning hike.

Very good as always! The best place for breakfast in Estes. Poached eggs with crab cakes are my wife's favorite. Very friendly waiters.

The breakfast potatoes were a bit salty. My daughter asked for no mushrooms in her skillet breakfast but they put them in anyhow. Didn't matter. Food was still good and wait staff was very friendly.
